For the People of Copperas Cove, the first day of school is truly a community affair. From fire trucks protecting intersections, police walking with families, soldiers providing words of encouragement, and teachers providing hugs, everyone is on board to make sure students are prepared for success.

“Getting to see the soldiers, police, and firemen help out today particularly helpful for us, because being new to the area it helps me know my grandkids are safe in this community,” says Stephanie Winns, who was walking with her daughter and her grandkids to school. “We got to know our neighbors so much better, and the children started school with a sense of confidence that comes from being part of the community.”
